I got started a little late advertising this year and I have been hitting it hard the last week. I have had ads in the paper and craigslist the last 4 weeks, and hung door hangers most of this past week. Today I got my first call saying that they had received a flyer of mine from a friend and would like to get some prices . The guy sounded like he might have been drinking as I had a hard time understanding what he was saying. I had to listen to the message 3 times just to get the number right. Although from the sound of it they would just be price shopping looking for cheapo lawn service but I was still exited to finally get a response from all the advertising I had been doing. I dial the number and after several rings an answering machine picked up and this is what I heard " This is Bill and I do lawn mowing, brush clearing, leaf removal and other work. Just leave your name and number and we will call you back." Talk about a let down. The only call I get is someone wanting to compare prices with his competition.
